PGA Tour pro falls into a creek but still makes one of the pars of the season!

PGA Tour pro Wesley Bryan fell into a creek in the first round of the Sanderson Farms Championship but still somehow managed to conjure up one of the pars of the season.

Bryan, 33, is battling to save his PGA Tour card so every shot very much counts for him this week at the Country Club of Jackson.

Starting out on the 10th, Bryan began brightly with an eagle-three at the 11th.

He then added a birdie at 13 to move to 3-under par thru just four holes.

But then disaster struck on the par-5 14th.

Scroll down to watch...

After splitting the fairway with his tee shot, Bryan pulled his second shot way left into the trees and over the other side of a creek. 

Bryan's ball was dry, it was just a case of getting to it that was the issue.

After contemplating his options, Bryan decided to jump the creek.

He successfully completed that part of the equation, albeit with due diligence.

Bryan then played a fantastic third shot out the trees and onto the back of the green. 

Now for getting back over to the creek.

Bryan decided to take his shoes off and walk through the creek back to the other side this time around.

Only once getting half way across the water, he fell on his backside.

"Oh god, what a disaster,"  Bryan could be heard muttering to himself. 

His caddie then helped him using a golf club to pull him back to dry land. 

Bryan laughed despite being covered in mud. 

At least his shoes were still white. 

Bryan dried himself off and then two-putted for an incredible par. 


Bryan added two more birdies in his round to sign for an opening 5-under 67 to put him in contention for a second career PGA Tour title.

The American's maiden PGA Tour title came more than six years ago at the 2017 RBC Heritage.

Bryan needs to keep his foot on the gas - and keep on his feet - from now through to Sunday as he currently finds himself in 189th position on the Fall List.

He only has a few more tournaments left to try and make his way inside the top 125 to keep a PGA Tour card for 2024. 

Bryan is therefore likely going to need a couple of hot finishes this Fall Series to ensure he remains on the main circuit.
